By Any Means Necessary

Someone must have forgotten to tell Kobe Bryant that it's his 17th year in the league.
I mean it's one thing to still be the best two guard in the NBA with 27 points (on a carer high 47% shooting), 5.4 rebounds, and 5.6 assists a game (yes, this guy is still un-gaurdable).

But it's another thing to straight up embarrass your younger peers.

First Brooklyn:

(Mind you, this play came late in the 4th quarter in a close game).

Then Minnesota:

And now last night against ATL:

Apparently Josh Smith didn't get the memo.
Again, this is late in the 4th quarter of a close game!

All of this within the last month (for which Kobe was named best player in the western conference).
My, what's with all the hostility?

Well, as you may remember Kobe not so long ago guaranteed that Los Lakers would make the playoffs this year. At the time, they were 26 and 29.

What he has done for you lately to back up those words???
How about ~35 points, 5.8 assists, and 7 rebounds a game over the last 5 while leading LA to a 4-1 record?

Think that suffices? 

And how about Dwight Howard last night with 11 points and 15 rebounds?
Or Steve Nash with 15 points and 10 assists?

Don't look now, but these guys are 30-30 and only 3 games out......of the 6th seed in the west!

Anyone want to bet against Kobe keeping his word?
